Summary 'This volume collects and reprints the most important essays of the late Barbara Myerhoff. The excellent introductory essay by Marc Kaminsky effectively relates Myerhoff's work to important theoretical trends in anthropology and cultural studies from the mid-1980s. His essay is a major contribution to this volume and an appropriate guide and framing for the essays that follow.'-George Marcus, Rice University
